Russell fans, take note: This is probably the strongest work he's done in movies.

Kansas City Kansan

Using the real-life Rodney King mess as a backdrop is pretty tawdry exploitation.

While it doesn't avoid the familiar and formulaic (what cop movie does these days?), DARK BLUE was a pleasant surprise, and proved that Russell can save just about anything

Cinema em Cena

Kurt Russell, um ator sempre subestimado, oferece mais uma performance digna de aplausos neste interessante filme cuja trama foi concebida por James Ellroy.

| Original Score: 4/5

Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

Dark Blue gets the brain working and sheds light on a controversial topic.

Worcester Telegram & Gazette

[A] gritty police drama addressing the matter of what police work does to the people who do it.

Josh Bell
Las Vegas Weekly

Shelton only achieves the intensity he's looking for at one point, when the riots finally break out and Perry has to drive through crowds of looters.

| Original Score: 3/5

September 7, 2003
Nick Rogers
State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)

Dark Blue has a seamy slow-burn energy, charged by its narrative and thematic tie-ins with the 1992 Los Angeles riots and a dynamite lead performance from Kurt Russell.

Movie Metropolis

...standard, formulaic, Hollywood crime fluff.

Joe Leydon
San Francisco Examiner

So many things go wrong -- stunningly, breathtakingly wrong -- throughout so much of Dark Blue that the movie is, somewhat like a spectacular auto wreck, perversely fascinating.

| Original Score: 1/4

...one of the most well-written and incisive entries in the good cop/bad cop formula of the recent years...

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Once upon a time in Los Angeles, the air was dirty and the cops were clean. The only reason to see this movie is to see Kurt Russell again prove his consistency. Too bad there aren't Oscars for the Cal Ripken's of Hollywood.

James Kendrick
Q Network Film Desk

a tough, but somewhat routine, corrupt-cop morality tale that generates a good deal of power by being set in the five-day period in 1992 leading up to the riots

Jonathan R. Perry
Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

Kurt Russell delivers the goods with astonishing simplicity and understated power.

| Original Score: 3/4

Film Blather

Essentially Training Day sans the retarded psycho-killer ending.

| Original Score: B

Gritty and realistic, both plausible and implausible, darkly funny and deadly serious

A high-intensity performance by Kurt Russell, in what is easily his best movie in ten years

Matt Brunson
Creative Loafing

The movie proceeds to bog down in every by-the-book cop cliche known to man.

| Original Score: 2/4
